Cloud gets the least amount of hate, with only 14.17% of participants voting for the green-eyed SOLDIER. It’s fair to say his popularity has taken a bit of a hit with the release of “Final Fantasy 7 Remake.” Many fans have found this particular iteration of Cloud to be annoying in ways he wasn’t in the original 1997 PlayStation game. Most notably, fans have taken issue with his incessant demands for his money while everyone else is just trying to make conversation. Still, receiving the least votes of all the characters named on this list must mean there’s still some love for this chocobo-haired hero.
The second most popular character in this unpopularity contest is Vaan from “Final Fantasy 12,” who comes in with 15.16% of the vote. It’s easy to see why players might get frustrated with Vaan. Most “Final Fantasy” protagonists are natural born leaders, but Vaan is very much a follower who is surrounded by much more charismatic and influential party members. Still, many have found the hatred for Vaan to be unfounded and his position in the rankings reflects that.
16.34% of people voted “Other,” meaning there were other characters not named on the list which they found more annoying. Unfortunately, that means the rest of the characters in the survey rank lower than every other character in the franchise.
